suzukihonda's review of Central Car Auctions Ltd

★☆☆☆☆

“ auction buyer beware”

Written on: 13/11/2017 by suzukihonda (1 review written)

being a motor engineer for 40 yrs and having purchased thousands of cars at auction i must advise against this auction site as they use sharp practice and from the way the cars are presented to the fees firstly they start and drive the cars into the ring very quickly to avoid you getting the chance to check under bonnet ect or checking the clutch ect and even if you are then bold enough to buy a vehicle the fees are a joke so my advice is to stay away and let them keep the junk vehicles a few weeks of not selling will bring big change to these merchants i seen a range rover that a private buyer had just paid £14000 300 yds down the road that needed a new engine this is what you get from central car auctions best of luck

I agree. I went today 20 mins before auction time and was not given the key to a car. The woman said auction is about to start. That car did not come up for auction till 2:15pm - number 20138 - the auction started at 12pm.
I did not buy the car. It sold for £2200. The fees i would have had to pay have £390 plus vat.
They collect the fees from both sellers and buyers.
Better than Mafia.
